Why should I service my car?

Your vehicle is a complex piece of machinery and to maximise its effciency and performance, it requires regular servicing.

This is a factor often overlooked and unappreciated, but the reality is failure to service your vehicle will decrese its lifespan and value, and increase the likelihood of breakdowns. In these instances, the cost of repair is often much greater than the cost of regular servicing. We are here to ensure you are only spending money when your vehicle really needs it.

We believe that owners should understand just how important this element of vehicle maintenance is and why servicing should always be carried out by mutil-skilled, qualified motor engineers.

 

How often should you have your vehicle serviced?

It really depends on a variety of factors, such as make, model and usage, but as an absolute minimum your vehicle should always be serviced at least every 12,000 miles or every 12 months between MOTs - whichever comes first. 

Some cars feature a self-diagnostic system, which will advise when a car service is due. Drivers are advised not to ignore these warning signs even if they occur before 12 months or 12,000 miles has been reached. If you drive an older vehicle or tend to rack up a high annual milage, you may require more regular servicing.
